A six-part comedy series adapted from the award-winning play about a young woman trying to cope with life in London whilst coming to terms with a tragedy.

Written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Been enjoying this, streaming on Amazon. Trailer doesn't "go there" like the show does. Give it a shot.

Two episodes in. Sorry I didn't heed your advice sooner, this show is legit. It's twice as good as its trailer is awful.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

‘Fleabag’ Returning To BBC & Amazon For Season 2 In 2019
via Deadline

Hit BBC Three comedy Fleabag is set to return for a second season in 2019 on both Amazon and the BBC. Creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge confirmed the BBC news today at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.

The first season was adapted from Waller-Bridges’ award-winning play, and saw Fleabag, a dry-witted, angry, cash-strapped, grief-riddled, porn-watching young woman trying to come to terms with a recent tragedy.

Details of her next outing are being kept close to the vest, though more outrageous exploits are to be expected.

I really enjoyed Season 2.  Phoebe is amazing.  (Doesn't hurt that she really reminds me of my late (25+ years ago) fiance...  In a good way.)

Did you all watch this masterpiece of a season yet? I'm seeing a lot of American reviews: it's on Amazon now.

It begins with the pitch of a joke, and yet she makes it truly weird and devastating.

pretty great.
I know I do a lot of comparisons when two things could be great in different ways or whatever. but: Barry made John Wick look like a boring miss, and Fleabag made Russian Doll look like John Wick.

Best thing I've seen in a long ass while. Phoebe is a treasure. This show can pivot from comedy to existential to slapstick to horror back to comedy all within a single scene. It's insane.

Also I really need to listen to you guys sooner.

Finally finished Season 1 of this show.
It's so tough to not binge.

Such an endearing riot. Waller-Bridge deservedly gets heaps of praise but it's also the editing + cinematography that keep it gold.  If you've been on the fence, jump off already.
